I use my email client to actively block spam.
I usually block the entire domain.
Of course, that doesn't slow down the absolute asshats that run spam sites.
From my history:
blocked 6/18/2012 executivebizbriefings.com
blocked 7/10/2012 executivebusinessbriefings.com
blocked 8/22/2012 executivebusinessreports.com
